As you already know, I have a mild, I mean major obsession with polka dots so it was only a matter of time till I created an entire look using some of my many polka dot pieces. Instead of wearing a skirt with the same black and white polka dot print as my crop top, I went for a more subtle approach and wore this skirt that has a polka dot pattern in a reduced size and color palette.
I recently bought this hat from Windsor and I am so happy with it! I am pretty picky when it comes to brim size and this seems to be the perfect match. I wore my favorite sunnies and some comfortable black sandals. I then topped it off with… yup, a polka dot bracelet. I thought, hey one more thing can’t hurt!
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter than you probably know that I am madly, obsessively in love with my dog Rocky. We’ve had him for almost 5 years but I still consider him my little puppy.
I took this photos for an upcoming feature on Collegefashionista where Style Gurus take pictures with their pets. I decided to blog these photos since I actually do wear this outfit often. These pictures will appear in a photo album on Collegefashionista soon, which I will link back to this post and on my Facebook page when it goes live.
A little on my outfit, I love how this super glam top complements my casual sneakers. Since the blouse is such a statement piece I felt that pairing it with denim would lose its wow factor. Instead I paired it with my favorite polka-dot shorts and I feel like they definitely let the sequence and the gold stand out more! It’s a really fun look that I can wear to school or even to lunch.
Oh my gosh! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to start blogging again. So much has happened since my last post. Here are just the highlights…
1. I turned 21! I celebrated with close friends and family which was absolute perfection.
2. I guess you can say I am now officially a senior in college. Umm, that’s crazy!
3. And get ready for this one… I am now a social media intern for BeachMint. This has been a dream of mine for almost two years. I fell in love with their company right away because they were innovative and worked with some of my favorite celebrities. Since I don’t go to a fashion school or a major university I knew I had to work hard to stand out as much as possible, and it turns out I didn’t need a fashion school or fancy college name to get the internship. I did exactly what people say… if you want something bad enough you have to work for it. And that’s exactly what I did.
Now let me talk about my outfit. I thought it was only appropriate to debut my new favorite shorts for my first post since my long hiatus. I had expressed in this post how badly I wanted polka-dot shorts and luckily I found these amazing Lauren Conrad shorts, on sale! It was pretty much meant to be. Although I have worn them casually I decided to dress them up with a buttoned down chambray and nude strappy heels. Then there is my laptop bag which has been ideal for my internship and not to mention school. It just adds that final touch to complete the outfit.
Shirt: H&M, Jeans: PacSun, Shoes: City Classified, Purse: Kate Spade, Belt: Target
I finally bought a polka dot blouse. This makes me one step closer to being like Sadie (described in this post). I have already worn this top way too many times and I am pretty sure people are starting to think I don’t own anything else. It is just SO comfortable! I am sure I am not the only one to be infatuated with new clothes for a few weeks. Polka dot pieces are similar to stripes because they are both classic pieces that will never go out of style. After reading my JCrew catalog and a quick trip to Forever 21, it does appear that they are on trend this season. So now is the perfect time to pick up a polka dot blouse and it will be good for years to come! I will show you in future posts different ways to style it.
